Widnes Vikings have confirmed the signing of forward Pat Moran from Cheshire rivals Warrington Wolves for the 2020 season.
Moran impressed last season whilst on loan at Sheffield Eagles, who beat the Vikings in the inaugural 1895 Cup Final at Wembley Stadium in August.
“I feel over the moon to sign a contract with Widnes Vikings. It is a fantastic club with a rich history and I just want to get started with pre-season and meet the rest of the team and coaching staff.
“I want to help the team push up and challenge for a top place in the Championship, giving us the best chance to eventually gain promotion, and it would be amazing to be a part of the club’s history. I’m determined to give the fans what they want and get them back into the Super League where Widnes belong.
“I’ve learnt that the Championship is just as tough and competitive as Super League. I’ve gained a lot of knowledge playing within different teams and being exposed to different players, so hopefully I can bring this along with me to Widnes. Being on loan has helped me over the years, any opportunity you get to get on the field is only going to help you develop as a player.”
